2011 has been another outstanding year for music, so here are some of my favorite artists and tracks I received during the year. They’re in a bit of a grouping, but you’ll have to figure out how it works, and most of these artists had 2-20 cuts I loved, but I only had six or so hours to work with.

Nerd New Year will be broadcast from 8PM to 3AM, MST (GMT +7) on New Years Eve.
